Excerpt:


There was once a curious little girl named Bella. She was four years old and was innocent to the ways of the world. She loved everyone and everything. Bella had a kind heart full of unconditional love and her mother hoped that she would remain this way even after she grew up.
One warm summer day as Bella was out with her mother exploring the world, she found a strange creature washed up on the shore of the beach they were exploring.
“Mom, what is this thing?” Bella asked as she bent down to gently scoop it up in her hands.
Her mother looked down into Bella’s small hands. The creature was certainly a strange looking being. I have never seen anything quite like it before.  She gently poked the creature with her finger. The creature was soft and squishy when she touched it. It was grey in color with small shells covering a portion of its body.
“I’m not sure Bella, but I think that it is a sea cucumber,” her mother said.
“Like the green thing that we eat with ranch?”
Bella’s mother started laughing.
“No, Bella. A cucumber is a vegetable while a sea cucumber is a creature. It is kind of like a slug, but lives in the water.”
“Oh.”
Bella looked back down at the creature in her hands. You could tell that she was thinking about something as she raised an eyebrow and wrinkled her small nose.
“Mom?”
“Yes, Bella.”
“Where did it come from? How did it get here?”
“It came from the ocean, Bella. Most likely it was washed ashore by the storm that we had last night.”
“Where did it come from before that?”
Bella walked slowly towards the ocean and gently placed the creature into the water.
“I’m not sure where in the ocean that it came from Bella. I don’t speak sea cucumber and certainly cannot ask it.”
“No, Mom. Where did it really come from? Who made it? Who made all of these things?” Bella asked as she spread her arms wide.
“Like us, Bella, God made all of these things. He is the creator of everything. Come sit beside me and I’ll tell you a story or two,” her mother said, patting the sand next to her.
Eager to hear a story, Bella hurried to sit next to her mother. She watched as the ocean raced toward her toes before it raced back out to sea. Her mind wandered as she listened to the stories that her mother told her.

Author Interview:


Hi Pam and welcome to my blog!

Are there any other genres you’ve written? 
Yes, I also write Christian Fiction thrillers, suspense.

Have you published any other novels, if so can you share the details? 

Yes. I have two other books currently published and a fourth book coming out later this month. I am the author of Operation Dark Angel: The Rise of Nicolaitanes and The World at War.

Are you working on anything new right now and can you tell us more? 
I am currently working on three books, an inspirational story, a children’s book and the next book in my thriller series.

Where Did I Come From?
 Meet Sammy the turtle. Sammy is a baby turtle who is all alone. Where did he come from? He knew that he had a mother somewhere, but he knew not where. Sammy goes on an adventure to not only find his mother, but to ultimately find out where he really came from

 A Valley Experience
Meet Brianca Euley, a girl who goes through life searching for love. She searches in all the wrong places—in the clubs, with various men, everywhere except where true unconditional love waits for her. Will she ever learn that what is missing from her life is God? How far down this path of destruction will she go before she reaches out to God?

The Return of Nicolaitanes
In the midst of World War III all of the Christians have disappeared from the face of the earth. The UWR blames all violence and the war on the Christians. If they are responsible for the war and all of the violence going on as the UWR claims, then why aren't they here? Nicolaitanes Balac has been murdered and the world is at a loss. Who will become the world's new hope?

What are you reading at the moment & would you recommend it to us? 
I am currently reading Zoo by James Patterson. It is a book that is completely different from anything that he’s ever written. It’s quite interesting actually and I think that you may enjoy it.

If you could Time Travel -  what year would you visit and why? 
I would go back to the days of Jesus. I would love to sit in the crowd and listen to his teachings first hand. That would be an incredible experience.

Do you decide on your book title first, or do you write the book and then the title is decided later? Actually when I’m given a new idea, I also know the blurb and the title of the book. I start writing it afterwards.

What is your preferred method of writing:-  The plot pre-planned from day one, or just go with the flow and see what happens next? I usually just go with the flow. Like you (the reader) I never know what’s going to happen next until it comes out of my fingertips. (LOL)

Do you like to write while listening to music and if so, does your book have particular playlist you’d like to share? I love to listen to gospel music while I write. Though sometimes I listen to my Somewhere in Time soundtrack


What books or authors have influenced you the most? Is there a writer that you consider a mentor? Do you have a favorite? JK Rowling. I think that it’s incredible how she stepped out of her comfort zone to write a novel not knowing whether or not it would be successful and look what happened with the Harry Potter series. It was a best seller worldwide. 

What writer(s) would I consider as a mentor? 
I would have to say Joel Rosenberg, Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. My favorite author is James Patterson.

Do you have any advice for aspiring writers? 
My advice to aspiring writers would be as follows: Never give up on your dream to be a writer even if some doors are slammed in your face. Eventually one will be opened for you, just have patience. Write not only for your own enjoyment but for the enjoyment of others.
